2018 Lanark County Festivals & Events guide released

March 13, 2018 by

Lanark County’s Tourism Department, in partnership with the municipalities of Beckwith, Carleton Place, Drummond/North Elmsley, Lanark Highlands, Mississippi Mills, Montague, Perth, Tay Valley and Smiths Falls, is pleased to announce the release of the 2018 Lanark County Festivals & Events guide.

The compilation of the Festivals & Events guide is one that involves virtually every community group and organization in the county, and is a comprehensive resource representing the wealth of events that take place each year within the region.

“Our communities tell their story through events and Lanark County is very strong in that regard, with many community groups and organizations working to host multiple events each year,” said Marie White, tourism manager. “The Festivals & Events guide is a useful tool to promote these events and help visitors plan their trip to Lanark County.”

The guide includes a listing of events taking place between January and December 2018, with contact information and location, as well as brief descriptions of signature events. Relevant tourism information about where to stay and suggested activities are also included as reference for prospective visitors.

The Festivals & Events guide has been produced annually by Lanark County’s tourism department since 2010, and is a sought-after resource for visitors to the communities in Lanark County. Each year, at least 50,000 copies of the guide are printed and distributed in Lanark County, the City of Ottawa and throughout Ontario.

“The goal is to get the guide directly into the hands of those who can use it,” White said. “We also mail the guide through direct requests to the Lanark County Tourism office.”

White noted the production of the guide wouldn’t be possible without the support, collaboration and contributions of municipal and community partners in Lanark County.

“This is a true team effort, and we’re thankful for the support of our partners for this project,” White said.

The Lanark County Festivals & Events guide is now available at the Lanark County office. Please call 1-888-452-6275 to request your copy. The guide is also available online here.
